Legendary extra large and mild chili pepper of Anaheim California. This mammoth roasting pepper originated from a line of chili peppers developed by Dr. Fabian Garcia in the 1910s in New Mexico. Those spicy chilis remained a staple of New Mexican cuisine, but when farmer Emilio Ortega introduced his variety to California in the 1990s, a more mild version was chosen to suit a more mild pepper palate in California. This offshoot, which has become a widely known mild chili ranges between 500-2,500 Scovilles units and is delectable for frying and roasting. Productive plants covered in large pods.
